Wash It Away

Black Lab


Wash it Away Black Lab Your Body Above Me
Tabbed by Joel Patterson (jpatterson100@hotmail.com) 10 Dec 99 ___________________________________________________________
This is my first attempt at tabbing a full Black Lab song including riffs and solos and stuff. Even if you just play through this tab, then please email me and tell me what you thought of it, as I would like to know If I am getting anywhere with my guitar learning. Thank you.
Standard Tuning: EADGBE
Chords
A G D D2 --0-- --3-- --2-- --2-- --2-- --3-- --3-- --3-- --2-- --0-- --2-- --2-- --2-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --2-- ----- --0-- --0-- --3-- ----- --2--
Throughout the first verse, the guitar is played muted, and only with a few notes of the actual chord, most likely the G and the B strings. Play around. It all sounds good.
The chord pattern for the verse is very simple, and only consists of 3 chords. The progression is A-G-D. Listen to the CD for the changes and timing.
During the second part of each verse it sounds better if you substitute the D2 in place of the D.
For the chorus, go back to the straight verse chords. Feel free to use the D2, depending on your taste.
During the bridge, play the chord progression A-D-G
The strumming patterns and muted notes are too hard for me to tab, so please listen to the CD for ideas. ______________________________________________________________

Verse 2: Chord Progression: A-G-D
Forty years spent one by one Forty years of life just slipping away What I'd give for a firstborn son Forty years of blood just washing away
I have waited wasted lives I have waited long enough I'd say Say what about this wasted child How can I just turn and wash it away
Chorus:

So send me an angel Send me the ghost that I was Send me an angel Send me the ghost that I was
Chorus (Note - the solo is played during this final chorus) * See below for solo ideas *
And I was and I am I will wash it away She will wash it away I will wash it away If I can then I will then I will and I will Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah etc....
Solo:
The solo is very open to individual taste and ability. I find it best to keep it within the following scale and just play around a bit. In keeping with the tune, play around the lower frets first, then move up as you progress
This is what I reckon sounds pretty good. But I am only a beginner, so you can laugh if you want
Play this riff through the first few bars of the chorus
E--------------------------------| B----0-2-2-2h3--3--3-3-2-2-------| G--2-----------------------2-----| D----------------------------2---| Repeat as desired A--------------------------------| E--------------------------------|
Then plat something in the following scale
E------------------------------5-7-9-10---| B----------------------2-3-5-7------------| G----------------0-2-4--------------------| Just pick a few notes D----------0-2-4--------------------------| and play with them A-----0-2-4-------------------------------| E-0-3-------------------------------------|
Play something with these notes during the "yeah's"
E--10-9---9-10-9---9--| B------10-------10----| G---------------------| Repeat a few times D---------------------| A---------------------| E---------------------| Then play something like this
E---------------| B---12-10-------| G---------12----| D---------------| A---------------| E---------------|
Go nuts on the solo. End the song with
E--3-2---0----|| B-----3--2----|| G--------2----|| D--------2----|| A-------------|| E-------------||
Hope you like it.
